about the bush tax cuts that are being extended permanently. number one in order to pay for healthcare reform some people are seeing their dividends tax on dividends go up starting today just over 3 percentage point increase. payroll tax cut that had been on the books for the last couple of years expired yesterday. that is not part of this deal. many of the viewers will see that i payroll taxes go up starting today. so in the pay checks moving forward those are going go up. the other thing that is important to look at is when congressman sandy levin was saying this is all part of the president's balanced approach which the president has talked about again and again over the last year or so, that means tax increases, the president was direct and on oest with the american people about that we note. but he also talked about spending cuts. and in this case, this deal is $620 billion in tax increases and yet about a net of about $15 billion in spending cuts. that is obviously not balanced. now, the white house view is the president was willing to have balance and had $1.2 trillion in spendi
not need to have the most expensive and least efficient health-care system of the major countries, and we could do it by taking principles that are being applied now in some states and are part of that health-care reform. this is within our capacity and what we should have focused on. host: "the washington times" has this headline -- let's look at what nancy pelosi have to say about passage of the bill. here is a statement her office . yet you voted against it. guest: i have a great deal of respect for what and nancy pelosi did, fighting for principles that would not be there but for her focus and the determination of the democratic caucus. there are a number of provisions that i care deeply about i have been the leading sponsor of extending renewable energy, for example. what, i guess, is missing here in this equation is being able to actually implement the reform. i think the work that leader nancy pelosi did, if it were focused on the bigger picture, if the administration made clear, for instance, that we would not have a deal unless we dealt with the debt limit that has already been e

largest and expensive military, the lowest taxes, the most expensive and inefficient health-care system, and continue to allow infrastructure to fall apart all while america out grows and ages. this agreement represents the least we could have done under these circumstances and tragically, it institutionalizes for the next congress the madness of the short-term frenzy around artificial deadlines to drive the american public crazy. not only can we do better but we must do better. this flawed, partial plan is not just a lost opportunity but represents a real setback. host: back to your phone calls on what is going on in congress. republican line from arkansas. caller: i pay health insurance every month. every year i end up paying $600 and it just goes up. on the issue of medicare in the fiscal cliff, you get 1.5% taken out of your paycheck or the past 20 years. why can we not raise that to the amount people pay for future health care? that would not bother me one bit. that is not a tax increase. it's an economic issue that health insurance costs have gone up but they have never raise the

a retirement benefit, a health-care benefit, those are entitlements, two, up to and including the entitlements for the congressman. let's be fair. when they start talking about entitlements and hold it to those three items, let's hold their feet to the fire and make them talk about entitlements for the other folks, too. host: appreciate you calling this morning. donna writes about this on twitter. if that to facebook here. -- back to you facebook here. budget showdown hits the keep week. that is of the front page reminding us of the deadline looming. it is a bloomberg story here out of the district. i you can watch the byplay here on the c-span that works with the president heading back to town tonight. the senate and house are due back tomorrow. billy from jacksonville, florida, to life for waiting. caller: i am very optimistic but i worry that the president will not get a chance because lindsey gramm already stated he will fight. i think there will already be another big fight for the debt ceiling. host: how does that make you optimistic that? caller: they know they have to do something, and
a parliamentary minority and now a whole series of programs including the healthcare program where there was a conscious effort to make sure he couldn't get what he wanted to read it's also true he couldn't keep his own democrats together and they have some culpability. with a very significant difference and then you move to 2009. we have a president that has been elected in the landslide with enormous coattails, the clear sign that with the public wanted to read a president that comes in with a 70% approval rating and the worst economy since the great depression. three and half weeks into his presidency he has his economic stimulus program. now you can argue, and i think that he would, that it was a plan largely hatched in the democratic rooms, but it also had more than one-third of an almost 40% as tax cuts. the end of the single largest tax cut was the extension of the alternative minimum tax which came from chuck grassley who ultimately voted against the plan. three and a half weeks in of a single republican in the house votes for it and three msm at not including those that ha
